Open the settings menu and select Controller
Scroll down to the Gameplay section and open the “Interact/Reload Behavior Menu“
Choose either Prioritize Interact or Prioritize Reload
After changing the setting you can safely back out of the menu and launch into a game and test out which version is right for you.

Prioritize Reload will do the inverse and guarantee that you reload above everything else.
For most players, Prioritize Interact will be the way to go as it massively speeds up the process of getting looted up and into the fight and it’s easy enough to understand when you’re safe to reload, so the convenience outweighs any potential sacrifice.
